Magnolia Cottage is a quintessentially English semi detached cottage. It offers well proportioned accommodation and is ideally situated in the centre of this highly sought after and picturesque village. Exbury lies within the heart of unspoilt countryside and has been managed by the Exbury Estate for generations.
The Village is unique in that it was originally created as a model village on part of the Exbury Estate. It was largely built to provide housing for the estate workers, using the characteristic yellow bricks from the local brickworks.
The estate comprises 2000 acres of land that is bounded by the New Forest, the Solent and the Beaulieu River.
Exbury offers peace and seclusion, but at the same time is within easy reach of the beach at Lepe, the open forest for walking, riding and cycling, the gorgeous village of Beaulieu is close by, and just 10 miles away is Lymington and Brockenhurst, both of which have mainline train stations to London. The M27 can also be reached in 20 minutes from Exbury.
The property has been refurbished and was extended in 2006/7 and now includes entrance porch, kitchen/breakfast room, utility room, downstairs cloak/shower room, good size sitting room, 3 first floor bedrooms and a family bathroom. Three years ago the living room lighting and electrics were updated, and the roof replaced along with the boundary fencing. Planning Permission has been granted for the construction of a new detached garage and store.
Outside there is a driveway to the side of the property with parking for several cars. The long rear garden is around 0.22 acre and mainly laid to lawn with mature trees to one side.
The cottage has oil fired central heating. Drainage for the property is by means of a private sewerage treatment plant on the Exbury Estate, and mains water is connected. Residents of Exbury also benefit from a free pass into nearby Exbury Gardens.
This cottage will make a fabulous home, or a great rental property, or even a weekend/holiday home for a city dweller.
We recommend viewing this property in its surroundings to fully appreciate it.
